, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a speech singled out vladimir putin as a basically a foe of the united states and he was doubling down on those controversial remarks. he made a few months ago, that russia was america's number one geostrategic foe. >> interesting on syria, i was listening to fareed zakaria, he noted the passive voice. we're wall for it as you mentioned, the foreign policy debate in two weeks. wolf blitzer, we'll talk next hour. i have more que

israel and the united states was very unfortunate. i think also that pulling our missile defense program out of poland and the way we did, was also unfortunate in terms of, if you will, disrupting the relationship in some ways that existed between us. and then, of course, with regards to standing or for our principles, when the students took to the streets in tehran people protested, the green revolution occurred. for the president to be silent, i thought, was an enormous mistake. we have to stand for our principles, stand for our allies, strand for strong military, and stand for a stronger economy. >> mr. president? >> america remains the one indispensable nation, and the world needs a strong america. and it is stronger now than when i came into office. because we ended the war in iraq, we were able to refocus our attention on not only the terrorist threat but also beginning a transition process in afghanistan. it also allowed us to refocus on alliances and relationships that had been neglected for a decade. and, governor romney, our alliances have never been stronger. in asia, in europ

articulation for a continued internationalist role for the united states, because including some of the conservative movements, some republicans who want to have more of an isolationist, a retreat, if you will, from an international involvement, go back to the u.s. borders, stay away from so many issues around the world, cut back on u.s. foreign aid, for example. you hear this -- you heard it decisively from ron paul, for example, when he was running for the republican presidential nomination. you hear it to a certain degree from his son senator ran paul. there are other isolationists in that republican party, but from mitt romney right now, you heard the exact opposite. the united states must take the lead. must stay involved. whether in afghanistan or he complained about the president's abandonment, if you will, of iraq and in the middle east, elsewhere around the world. a very robust international policy -- internationalist policy, and i thought that was a significant statement on his part. >> let's talk a little bit, wolf, about what the voters are looking for, because you ha

of the united states, when i'm president of the united states, that unemployment rate is going to come down not because people are giving up and dropping out of the workforce, but because we're creating more jobs. i will create jobs and get america working again. >> and, you know, we're going to talk about politics here, but before we do that, this unexpected drop of the unemployment rate deserves a much closer look. alison kosik with you at the new york stock exchange, 7.8%, what is behind the number? >> okay, brooke, the unemployment rate fell because more people said that they had jobs, that's different from the previous month when he saw the unemployment rate drop a little bit because people dropped out of the workforce, people stopped looking for work. so in september, with this jobs report that we got today, when government workers called up people on the phone, in this survey and asked them if they're employed, almost 900,000 more people said they had jobs in september than in august. that is why you saw the unemployment rate fall to 7.8%. okay. then there is a second separate survey
because you once made a mistake, years ago or decades ago. there are states in the united states today where you forfeit your right permanently, because of a felony you once were convicted of in your life. voting should be deemed a right, an absolute, inalienable right. in other western democracies, the idea that, you know, you can be deprived of your right to vote because you once committed a crime is, you know, considered laughable. there are actually voting drives conducted in prisons and other western democracies. but here in the united states, you can be deprived of your right to vote for a period of years or even the rest of your life. >> i should say that the naacp launched a campaign this month to restore voting rights to ex-felons, and it's going to be interesting to watch that one, but i want to be more specific about this election. you have seen the efforts to, what some people call voter suppression. some people say it's to protect the voting process, by asking people to show identification. is that voter suppression or is it protecting the voter process? >> oh, it's absolu

states was the president of the united states tonight. he -- there are only two things i think people with looking for. one, are you a strong leader? and are you on my side? he was clearly a strong leader tonight. he was passionate, he was focused, and i thought when he went over the line, when romney went over the line and challenged his integrity with regard to the people that died and the president stood up and said that's not who i am, i think that will go down as one of the great moments in american debate. and beyond that, i think romney may have hurt himself with women. here the questions about equal pay for equal work, romney, the only thing he says is when he's 50 years old, he heard there was a problem and he wants to figure out ways for moms to get home on time to cook dinner. that is not the right answer to that question. i'm sorry. the right answer to that question is, america's government should be a partner to america's mothers to make sure by law people can -- >> let's move along. alex, quick response. >> i think i've begun to figure out who vince is going to vote for.
